Howdy guys and gals,
I’ve been slacking on posting since I’m settling into my summer class and staying on top of my work. For this week’s pick I choose is Sing by Ed Sheeran.
I’ve been a fan of Sheeran’s music since I first heard “A Team” and “Kiss Me”. He makes everything sound effortless from his vocals to his guitar work. Those high notes, awesome. So far Ed has done an amazing job of creating songs that tell stories. I will admit when I heard a few of his songs for the first time I teared up just because of the subject matter of the song and the way he weaved them into his music. “Small Bump”, which is on his album + (Plus), is one of those songs. Not every artist can do that with their music.
“Sing” is the first single off his upcoming album X (Multiply), that’s set to be released on June 23. The song was produced by Pharrell Williams so it has a funky vibe that I love because it just works for Ed. The single is also Ed’s first song to be number one on the UK Top 40. You can check out his website here.
Check out the video for “Sing”:
Bonus Song: Chandelier by Sia. Its popped up on my Pandora a few times this week and I’ve found myself singing along after a few listens. Sia’s voice stands out from the pack.
